> Also, related to LanX's comment, How does method dispatch interact with AUTOLOAD?

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; Class->new("method"); Class::new("function"); # sub UNIVERSAL::new { # warn "UNIVERSAL", pp \@_; # } package Class; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; sub AUTOLOAD { warn "AUTOLOAD", pp \@_; }

AUTOLOAD["Class", "method"] at d:/Users/lanx/AppData/Roaming/exp/new_a line 23. AUTOLOAD["function"] at d:/Users/lanx/AppData/Roaming/exp/new_autoload line 23.

with UNIVERSAL::new() uncommented:

UNIVERSAL["Class", "method"] at d:/Users/lanx/AppData/Roaming/exp/new_ line 14. AUTOLOAD["function"] at d:/Users/lanx/AppData/Roaming/exp/new_autoload line 23.

So a class which counts on catching ->new in AUTOLOAD would be sabotaged.

A normal function call wouldn't be effected by UNIVERSAL.
